Peter answered yes. Let’s take a look at Peter’s situation.

  • 60-year-old Peter works full time.
  • His salary is $100,000/year and employer Super Guarantee contributions are $9,500/year.
  • Peter can contribute an additional $15,500 (before tax) to super and still be within his concessional contribution cap of $25,000/year.
  • Peter asks his employer to salary sacrifice $15,500/year. After taking into account concessional tax of 15%, Peter has $13,175 to invest in super.
  • With income tax savings, Peter’s take home salary reduces by just $9,703, despite salary sacrificing $15,500.
  • Peter uses $195,000 of his super to start a transition to retirement (TTR) pension.
  • He draws a pension of $9,703/year from his pension to replace the reduced salary.

Peter has $3,472 extra invested in super by using the transition to retirement strategy. Would you like to see how this strategy can work for you?
